Delayed cycle return: It can occasionally take a few months to have your cycles and fertility return to normal after birth control use. You may not get a period before getting pregnant, so consider checking a home pregnancy test and consulting with your primary care physician if your cycles do not return to normal or pregnancy occur in the next few months.
